Sting’s Hypocritical “Green Tea Party” Lecture

International jet-setting rock star calls for more big government to save us from our carbon emissions

Stings Hypocritical Green Tea Party Lecture  260410Sting I admit it from the off – I’ve never liked Sting. I find his voice grating and his music annoys me. So if Sting and Mrs Sting go on CNN and lecture the general public about how we are killing the planet and our only saviour is some form of vastly empowered big government, it’s going to get my goat.

In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon on Sunday, the rock star dubbed Earth Day celebrations in Washington a “Green Tea Party”, while simultaneously calling for “big government” to save the planet:

“Well, you can see the enthusiasm out there.” Sting commented. “And people are here to really tell big government that we want big government to make big decisions about the most important problems we face. And also to pressure our corporations to behave properly, as consumers, but we’re here to — we’re asking for big government, basically.”

“You want big government?” a somewhat baffled Lemon asked.

“Of course we do.” Sting replied. “This is a huge problem, and only the government can solve it. You know, the man on the street can do a little bit, but big governments need to make decisions. We need to stop clear-cutting forests. We need to protect the forests. That’s the simplest way of cutting greenhouse gases.”

Then Trudie Styler, eager not to be known as “the little wifey”, dropped a bombshell – there’s going to be no life on Earth in 50 or so years, unless we create and empower this big government to save us:

“We have to really lean on our governments to do something. Because I think that we’re going to maybe not in my lifetime, but towards the end of our children’s, we’re going to reach a tipping point, that we will no longer be able to support life on this planet earth. I believe in that defiantly and passionately and strongly.”

Sting finished off the interview by singing his song “One World Is Enough” – presumably one world, run by one big government, with one big global accord; every breath you take – they’ll be taxing you (awful pun intended), while Al Gore and Maurice Strong rake in billions via the international carbon trading scam.

Watch the video:

“A climate skeptic is someone who jumps out of the 20th floor of a hotel, and for 19 floors he says to everybody ‘hey it’s fine’ nothing’s wrong”.

Nice analogy Sting, but what does that mean? I would say that a real climate change skeptic is someone who looks at the the available facts and the science from a neutral starting point and comes to his or her own conclusions, rather than blindly accepting whatever he, or she, is told by big government, wealthy elites and the cherry picked scientists they have gathered into their camp.

What is more, I would wage a bet that 99.9% of climate skeptics are greener than Mr Sting in any case. I fly once every two years (if that), I recycle anything recyclable, I do not own a car and I live in a modest energy efficient two bedroom flat. That doesn’t mean I believe we’re all doomed unless we de-industrialize the planet, keep the third world mired in poverty and cough up carbon taxes to a global regulatory body.

I do not need a “green” lecture from a man who has seven homes and jets a 750-person crew around the world all year round putting on massive rock concerts.

Who does Sting think he is? The leader of the green Police? (again, couldn’t resist).

You may think it bizarre after that rant, but I do believe Sting and Styler’s hearts are in the right places. Deforestation is a real environmental problem that can and should be conquered legitimately, without surrendering the power to govern ourselves and lining the pockets of the wealthy few.

However, throwing in alarmist claims regarding CO2 driven global climate change is irresponsible, screams of bandwagon jumping, and comes across as totally hypocritical.

The last thing we need is armies of emotionally charged middle aged dadrockers baying for more big government because their leader, Sting, has them believing it’s how you stay down with the in crowd.

Surely that’s a more frightening scenario than global warming could ever top.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
